Do I need a follow-up or touch-up appointment?
Follow-up appointments are typically done within 6-8 weeks of of the original procedure. However, you have a year to have follow up appointments. Follow up appointments depending on the office location are subject to an office fee.
Touch-up appointments are appointments completed within 12-24 month of the original procedure and are 1/2 price of the original procedure and include another year of follow up appointments, subject to office fees.
If it’s been over 24 months since the original appointment and you have not had a touch-up appointment, additional treatment would be considered a re-do and subject to the current procedure price.

Permanent makeup or cosmetic tattooing
Some people refer to permanent makeup, also known as micropigmentation as cosmetic tattooing. This reference is not exactly accurate.
While the principles are similar to tattooing in that pigment is implanted into the skin, the techniques, pigments and devices are quite different.
A traditional tattoo is intended to be seen and in most cases admired. On the contrary permanent makeup is meant to enhance or correct and should be so natural looking in color and placement that an observer will not know the difference.
The goal is to provide natural, easy everyday radiance without effort.
